Freaking typos. But seriously assuming they aren't lying through their teeth (which is possible) the supposed new engine should mean greatly improved graphics. Gamebryo wasn't exactly the pinnacle of optimization. --- Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?
I like that comparison because the first time I played Oblivion I understood why the Xbox 360 was so exciting. It just looked beautiful. --- Not changing sig until Bethesda announces The Eld....wait what? Seriously? No, seriously? For real!? Come on stop joking...wow bout time...
Yes the engine is new. Some people are relying on partial quotes and misinterpretation of something that Howard said back in August to claim that it's just an upgraded version of Gamebryo. But if you follow Bugmeat's link to the Eurogamer interview and you can see his full quote. You'll also see for yourself that not only does he never say it's just an updated version of Gamebryo, he actually says "The technology is ours and it is inspired by the technology we have."
Gamebryo was not theirs, they licensed it. If the new stuff is theirs and based on what was already theirs it can't be Gamebryo. Add to that the three different employees stating that it's a brand new engine. Two of them specifically stating that it was built in house. You'd have to be pretty slow to still think it's Gamebryo.
--- Thank you for filling my life with hope. Every morning I wake up hoping that you have died.
